Head of IMF mission in Azerbaijan: Middle Eastern events unlikely to impact on Central Asia

Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 16 / Trend N. Ismayilova /
The events, taking place in the Middle East, are unlikely to impact on Central Asia and Azerbaijan, new head of IMF mission in the country, deputy director of the Middle East and Central Asia Department, Nadeem Ilahi, said at a press conference following the visit to Azerbaijan.

"It is difficult to assess the events in the Middle East and their influence on other countries. The IMF experts are trying to analyze this issue. However, I believe that Azerbaijan and Central Asian region are not associated closely with the Middle East by trade, political and economic ties. The impact of events occurring in the Middle East is unlikely to be made. But on the other hand, today all countries are interconnected, " Ilahi said.
On Friday, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, who led the country for 30 years, resigned after 18 days of popular unrest. His leaving was preceded by deterioration in the economic and social situation, the collapse in the internal security of the country. Mubarak handed over the power to the country's Supreme Council of the Armend Forces. The military abolished the constitution, dissolved the parliament and promised to hold democratic elections within six months.
